On Saturday, Joanna revealed the newest addition of her family was born two and a half weeks early.   

'Our baby boy, Crew Gaines, is here and we couldn’t be more in love,' she gushed in the caption. 

'He made an unexpected (and speedy) entrance into the world two and a half weeks early - which is fitting given he was a sweet surprise from day one. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. We are so grateful.'

'And then there were 5. The Gaines crew is now 1 stronger! 10 beautiful toes and 10 beautiful fingers all accounted for, and big momma is doing great! #blessedBeyondBelief,' he tweeted.

The couple already had four children – Drake, 13, Ella, 11, Duke, nine, and Emmie Kay, eight. 

Crew is a bit of a break in tradition, since the boys in the family have names beginning with D.

The birth came one month after she celebrated her wedding anniversary with Chip. She shared a beautiful throwback snap of herself with her veil streaming down her back as he kissed her on the cheek.

The design diva captioned the black and white photo: 'It's been a good fifteen years @chipgaines. Here's to fifty more,' adding a heart emoji.

In April Joanna told People this fifth child was not planned.

'It was a total surprise,' admitted Gaines.

But it came at a good time for the couple as they now have more time to devote to their family,  after wrapping HGTV's reality show on April 3 after five seasons on air.
